The new release of usplash is very good progress toward this IMHO.
Though more progess is needed before I would be comfortable putting it
in the task. I'm thinking about bugs #422920, #422922, #387640, and
#381104, which are some of the bugs I encountered while testing it..

The 15-sec timeout are not really bugs in the sense that they'll degrade anything (it just doesn't look pretty). I think the biggest issue to solve here is fsck (and I think it could be solved with some shell trickery).

422920 is a recent bug introduced by yours truly (which should be easy to fix)

We still also need to get more init scripts using the lsb init functions so
that they can show up in usplash. This gives an idea of how much needs
to be done:
though it's incomplete, see for example #419143.

Incomplete but also shows some false positives (most BR's are for init scripts which lack LSB dependency headers, not LSB logging functions...even though they probably correlate).

I fixed the init scripts of 25 - 30 packages to use LSB logging functions and submitted bug reports for them in one afternoon (2/3 of which have been applied), so I do not think the task is insurmountable.
